Atea Oceanie: What 'That Girl' Is Wearing
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Fashion Week is over. But fashion dilemmas still remain. I love watching all of the coverage. But so much of it just doesn't translate to my life. Still, a girl's got to get dressed in the morning.
Since I split my time between staying at home writing and traveling and attending events, I love pieces that are beautiful and comfortable and still could be on those runways in New York, Paris, and Milan.
All of that is to explain why I fell in love with Laura Myers' new endeavor, Atea Oceanie -- Atea for short.
Myers is a native Zealander who has frequented Tahiti since she was a kid. While completing her undergraduate work at Brown, she worked at Louis Vuitton and Ralph Rucci over her summer breaks. After Brown, she moved to New York City where she worked at Saatchi and Saatchi. Later she returned to New Zealand, to work for women's wear designer Trelise Cooper. She finally moved to Europe. Although she splits her time between London and New York. Atea is her lifelong vision.
